Basim Magdy: interview

Basim Magdy reveals a world of colour in his films and photographs. The critically acclaimed Egyptian artist uses a poetic language of image, text and sound in his narratives of collective memory and forgetfulness. Science, futurology and the natural world are among the interests spotlighted in his first solo exhibition in London


Curated by Regine Basha at Cecilia Brunson Projects, the show features one of his most recent films, The Many Colors of the Sky Radiate Forgetfulness (2014), to be screened this month at the Rotterdam International Film Festival 2015. Basim Magdy talks to Studio International about the subject and process of his filmmaking.
